Medical Office Building Project Provides State-of-the-Art Healthcare for Rural and Urban Communities

NORFOLK, Va., March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hampton Roads Ventures (HRV), a community development investment firm, employed the federal New Markets Tax Credit ("NMTC") program to provide equity and debt financing for two medical building projects in both urban and rural communities in Virginia providing successful solutions to one of the top issues affecting Americans: affordable and accessible healthcare.

With the recent deal closing of the Duffield Medical Center in Duffield, Va., HRV solidified its impact on the federally-designated medically underserved area in the Appalachia region. Using NMTCs to attract private sector investment capital, HRV provided $5 million of financing with "equity-like" features and non-traditional rates and terms to facilitate the development of the state-of-the-art 26,500 sq. foot project.

HRV's innovative financing techniques are allowing for the area to triple its available physicians from two to six, providing a full service outpatient diagnostic center and a fully-equipped rehabilitation facility -- a first for the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Low-Income Community. The development of this $6.9 million center will provide 37 permanent jobs and provide countless health improvements for those in the surrounding community.

In continuing with its 2009 initiative focusing on Jobs, Healthcare, and Education, HRV partnered with development firm Lauth, Bank of America and SunTrust to solidify the dream of longtime Norfolk resident, Dr. Keith Newby, Sr. to develop the Fort Norfolk Plaza Medical Office Building. The nine-story, 195,890 sq. foot building will be the first new medical office building constructed in Downtown Norfolk in 40 years.

HRV was poised to help fulfill Dr. Newby's dream with its investment of $11.6 million in below market-rate and "equity-like" loans for the project. The $67.8 million project will provide state-of-the-art facilities to health care professionals with a Medicare/Medicaid patient population of at least 50 percent to 60 percent. In addition, the Class-A building will include several medical practices, a parking garage, and retail space creating approximately 1,205 new jobs in an urban community near three low-income public housing communities.

"The innovative development of these medical office projects are just the beginning of what we hope to accomplish. Facilitating NMTCs to more than 10 projects, HRV continues to be a part of significant community transformations throughout the U.S., while keeping a constant focus on the most prominent issues Americans are facing," said Robert K. Jenkins, Jr., HRV President and CEO.
